Cottage breaks with a hoist available
There is a number of holiday cottages in the UK with an in-house hoist for disabled guests and these are displayed below.
Owners of holiday accommodation for the disabled in the UK and very keen to help in any way that they can to ensure that all of their guests have a comfortable and enjoyable holiday. Some of the comments that owners have made regarding hoists and specialist equipment for disabled guests is shown below.
Arranging a hoist for your cottage holiday
There are local companies and the Red Cross who will deliver a hoist for guests arrival and collect on departure. Cottage owners would give these details to guests for them to book a hoist.
There is no problem obtaining hoists and bed blocks, oxygen etc from specialist companies dealing with equipment for disabled people. Guests normally organise this separately as they know exactly what they need. Cottage owners of accommodation designed for disabled people can usually provide a list from the company of what they can provide and the price. It may also be possible for UK residents with severe disabilities to get funding for their holiday which pays for the equipment needed.
Every UK Holiday Cottage has a Mobility Access Statement
Read the Mobility Access Statement published on the cottages own website, these details each mobility aid or device available. Most UK and Irish cottage owners always only to ready to discuss guest’s personal requirements and advise them of what can be provided.
